A. Data and content acquired automatically during use of the Site 
Technical data: the information technology systems and software procedures that enable the functionality of this Site may acquire, during their normal utilization, certain personal details the transmission of which is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. These data are not compiled in order to be associated with identified Users, but due to their nature, they may, through processing operations and cross-referencing with details held by third parties, enable you to be identified. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names utilized by you to access the site, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, etc.

B. Data collected using cookies or similar technologies 
The Site uses cookies to make your browsing experience easier and more intuitive. Cookies are small texts strings used to store certain information that may be relevant to you, your preferences or the device used to access the internet (mobile phone, computer or tablet), and are utilized principally to ensure that the Site meets your expectations.

Cookies are not used for the transmission of personal data. However, persistent cookies (i.e. user tracking systems) are used, but only to afford access to the reserved area. As such, your Personal Details are acquired by the site via these technologies.

The use of session cookies (which are not stored persistently on your computer and are deleted when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (constituted by random numbers generated by the server) that are required to enable the safe and efficient exploration of the Site.

The session cookies used on this Site do not have recourse to other information technology techniques that could potentially compromise the privacy of your browsing operations, and they do not enable the acquisition of Personal Details that could identify you.

If you wish to do so, you may block the saving of some or all cookies. However, in such cases, the use of the Site and the services offered may be compromised. To proceed without modifying the cookie operations, you may simply continue browsing.
